i skip too but have fun y'all.

We have finalized the specs of the PC compo machine. While the hardware will be identical to 2018 there are some changes in the software config.

For Windows we will install the compo machine with Windows 10 64bit version 1809, this also brings us DotNet version 4.7.2. On top of this we'll put the latest WHQL drivers from NVidia, without "GeForce Experience". Furthermore the "Game Bar" will be disabled in Windows but the "Game Mode"will be switched on.
We will also install a more recent version of Ubuntu Desktop 64bit, version 18.10 - as always with the default package selection and then-current proprietary NVidia Linux driver.
The versions of Windows or Ubuntu which might be released in April will not be installed.
Again, the full overview of the PC compo machine:

CPU: Core i7-7700K 4,2GHz
Mainboard: ASUS H270M-PLUS
RAM: 16GB RAM 2400MHz
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X Pascal with 3584 cores
OS: Windows 10 64bit Version 1809 and latest WHQL NVidia drivers

Does anyone know how quick it is expected to have a confirmation for reservations made on http://www.saarbruecken.de/de/tourismus/kongresse_tagungen_messen/veranstaltungs termine/revision_request?

I will be applying for a visa early next week, and so I need to have a reservation confirmed within a couple of days at max.

Dear orgas: I understand it's OK to hand in a submission for the demo compo at the party place via USB stick?

Adok: Not really because it's a waste of time compared to uploading your entry to the partynet.

Adok of you bring a prod but no computer, you can simply ask a fellow visitor with a computer if you could use it for 5mins to upload your release.

I prefer this style to what is nowadays considered the state of the art in webdesign, sorry. I do it my way.

We have finalized the specs of the PC compo machine.

For Tiny Intro (again), can you say a bit more about the CPU in the FreeDOS compo machine? When it says a quite recent CPU, does that mean a quite recent high-end CPU, i.e. can I safely assume that it is at least as fast as my 5-year-old 4770K? :)

Can you confirm that these compo machines are the same?

Will there be a 5k compo this year? Had to skip it last year due to recovering from a severe life-threatening flu..

I salute you, runners, for you spirit and basically condition :)
This is the usual time when we pick up the rental and hit one more cool town nearby before coming back to the evening intro/demo block. After visiting Strasbourg, Luxembourg, Metz, Nancy and Trier this year it's a Koblenz.

Anyone wisihng to have a quick side-show just bother me at the party place on Friday.
